Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 14 vs SF (6 / 12 / 63 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Tom Savage started the game 5 of 5 and was moving the ball well for the Texans offense. Protection started to break down and then the hits started piling up and Savage started taking sacks. After that point Savage completed 1 of his next 11 passes before an ugly scene taking a hit in the end zone and having his head hit the ground hard. Coming back in for one series, Savage was checked on again and ruled him out shortly with a concussion. His status for next week is question due to his concussion situation and the quarterback position is once again in flux.

2017 Week 13 vs TEN (31 / 49 / 365 / 1 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Somehow Tom Savage put together his best career yardages passing day of his career throwing for 365 yards on the day. Savage was cruising when he had his full complement of skill players but when C.J. Fiedorowicz, Braxton Miller and Bruce Ellington all were lost, the offense was looking for any type of answers. Savage spread the ball around nine different receivers and really had no choice. His only two targets as the game wore on were DeAndre Hopkins and Stephen Anderson were the go to players. Anderson benefited the most from Savage who hit him for 4 yard touchdown pass on a broken play and then late in the game hit him with gains of 25 and 22 to keep the chains moving. Savage's biggest mistake came on ball he threw up to Hopkins where he was expecting him to stay outside but a late move inside allowed the defender to intercept the ball in the end zone. With a makeshift offensive line and banged up skill group, Tom Savage somehow was able to keep the Texans in the game.

2017 Week 12 vs BAL (22 / 37 / 252 / 0 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Turnovers continue to haunt Tom Savage and he added two more with costly interceptions to set up scores for the Ravens. Savage has turned the ball over 12 times in his 5 starts this season creating some issues for the offense. Savage shows at times he can move the ball with deep strokes and he hit DeAndre Hopkins with big gains on the night most notably the 39 yard strike to set up a field goal. Savage shows he understands what the Texans want to do on offense but struggles with consistency week to week over the past month of starts.

2017 Week 11 vs ARI (22 / 32 / 230 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)

It was a rough start for Tom Savage after leading the Texans to an early touchdown drive in the game. Savage was sacked and fumbled which was recovered by Arizona then soon after threw an interception that was tipped into the hands to Patrick Peterson. Before Savage struggled to gain his composure but then settled down and went to work completing over 70% of his passes in the second half. Savage made the biggest difference in his game completing 70% of his passed in the 10-19 yard range eating up yards. Minus the two turnover, Savage had a very efficient day throwing a touchdown pass to Lamar Miller for 7 yards and DeAndre Hopkins for 28 yards. He also made some play outside of the pocket that has not been seen from Savage. It was a good result and it is interesting to see if he can do it again.

2017 Week 10 vs LAR (18 / 36 / 221 / 1 / 2 pass, 2 / 0 / 0 rush)

It started strong for Tom Savage but quickly fell a part after 4 turnovers that doomed the Texans. Savage threw for 221 yards with a touchdown to Bruce Ellington on a 26 yard touchdown pass. Savage looked comfortable in the second quarter going 6 of 10 with the touchdown to Ellington and a pick late in the 1st half in the red zone. Savage then went backwards with a fumble on a blitz that was in his face and took the sack. He also fumbled early in the game after his guard was beat with no issues and he did not see them prior to the sack. Savage struggled to make a mark on the field only completing 18 of 36 and continually threw into coverage. There were only 2 interceptions on the day but it could have been 4 if the Rams would have hung onto the ball or not committed penalties. It will be interesting to see the route the Texans take moving forward with the quarterback position with two poor performances by Savage in a row.

2017 Week 9 vs IND (19 / 44 / 219 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

It was Tom Savage's first start since week one and what was a high flying offense under Deshaun Watson was anything but that on Sunday with Savage running the offense. With slow reads and anticipation, he completed 19 of 44 passes on the game and at one point heading into the 4th quarter only completed 2 passes of 10 yards on nearly 20 attempts. He did get rolling late in the game when he hit DeAndre Hopkins on 34 yard touchdown strike on a go route. Savage had accuracy issues all game and was sailing passes out of bounds majority of the game. IT was not a good look for Savage and it is clear that the Texans might be looking in a different direction moving forward if they can find the right option.

2017 Week 1 vs JAX (7 / 13 / 62 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Tom Savage did not get much help today playing quarterback but part was his fault too. Holding onto the ball too long caused some unnecessary hits and sacks but he was 7 of 13 for 62 yards with two fumbles lost due to being hit from the blindside. Savage had some nice throws to C.J. Fiedororicz to the middle of the field for 15 yards to his big tight end. Also, Savage had a nice 3rd down throw to Stephen Anderson for 11 yards to extend an early drive. What made matters worse for Savage was no help from his receivers who had four drops behind him. Ryan Griffin dropped a pass after being hit, Bruce Ellington dropped an easy pass outside of the number but DeAndre Hopkins gave zero help. Hopkins dropped a crossing route that would have been a catch and run but the worst of them all came on a deep ball from Savage on the first drive that hit him right in the hands only to fall incomplete. No doubt Savage needs to speed up but he received little help from his supporting cast.
